Donate/ Volunteer

United Way Fresno and Madera Counties is committed to helping the most vulnerable members of our community, especially during times of crisis. 

There are multiple ways you can help us help Fresno and Madera County residents at this time. 


Right now, there are two ways to donate to United Way Fresno and Madera Counties. Visit to give to our regular operational fund. This helps us continue to do our work remotely while our office is closed, and get word out about resources and programs in a timely fashion while we're handling an unprecedented volume in calls, messaging, and social media contact.

Visit to give to our newly established Coronavirus Relief Fund. Your unrestricted donation will go directly to local families and individuals who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  You can also text "RELIEFNOW" to 44321 to give. 

*More information on applying for our Second Round of assistance will be released very soon. PLEASE NOTE: This fund will only be available for Fresno and Madera county residents.*
